After her Golden Globe winning performance in American Horror Story: Hotel and roles in movies such as Machete Kills, this will be one of Lady Gaga’s most crucial role in her career as it is her first movie where she is going to be the lead actress. Gaga will be working opposite Bradley Cooper who is not only acting in the movie but also directing it, under the banner on Warner Brothers. Cooper, too, has received nominations for some of his movies including, American Sniper, Silver Lining Playbook and American Hustle.
This won’t be cooper’s first directorial venture, but it, surly, will be an important one for him. Greg Silver has been appointed the producer of this movie and he believes that Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper will make a brilliant on-screen pair. He has also assured his faith in Bradley’s directing skills.
“For those of us lucky enough to watch him work as an actor and producer, it has been clear that Bradley would make this transition to director,” Silver conveyed. He also said “We are honoured that he is doing it, here, at his home, Warner Bros, and with Lady Gaga as a collaborator and co-star. The world is in for a treat as these great artists craft an all new vision of A Star is Born.”
Tagging along with Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper is the famous, Madonna.
Initially, Beyoncé was suppose to sign the role of the lead actress, however, she back out as her financial demands were not being met.
Lady Gaga will also be composing and performing songs, specifically, for her upcoming remake of A Star is Born. The shootings are scheduled to commence in the initial months of 2017.
Janet Gaynor and Fredric March were the star cast in the original movie A Star is Born, in the year 1937. In the remake that was produced in 1954, Garland appeared with James Mason had been appointed the star cast. This time its going to be Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. It will be rather interesting to see what the two do differently in a remake of a classical tale, in this day and age.
